11:19 pm
now, we had the cloud cover offshore. the beginnings of this frontal system really start to go get its act together as you can see it looming up in this last loop right there, really expanding out, and that is currently where some of these showers are located, about 300 miles offshore. as this area of low pressure continues to get closer, that will bring a chance of showers here for saturday and sunday. for saturday specifically, once again it's mainly the north bay for the best chance of showers on sunday, chance of scattered showers for the entire bay area down to the south bay. let's get you into the timing here. 7:00 a.m., we're dry for the entire viewing area. then as we head into saturday night at 9:00 p.m., only a slight chance of showers for the north bay. it's going to be in the early morning hours of sunday, and by sunday p.m. that we'll see this chance of showers for the bay area where we could see anywhere from a tenth of an inch right around to quarter of an inch. the computer model is picking up

most accumulations in the east bay. not much expected for the north or south bay at this point. if you want to stay dry, it looks like the south bay will be your best bet at this point for your weekend. by 10:00 a.m., partly cloudy, clouds lingering, and most temperatures near 60 degrees for your saturday morning. all right, saturday's numbers, they're like this. below average, clouds building throughout the day as that front gets closer. 75 in san jose, 73 in fremont. for the peninsula, upper 60s and low 70s. as we head into oakland and our midland spots, low 70s in the north bay where our best chance of showers will be for saturday. once again, widespread scattered showers for everyone, at least the possibility of it on sunday. then we clear out and warm up as fall starts on wednesday. >> thanks, chujeff.
